Dan Ticktum has lost his victory in today’s Formula 2 sprint race at Monza after being disqualified for a technical infringement.
Competitors are required to provide samples of at least 800g of fuel at any point during a race weekend. Only 50g could be taken from Ticktum’s car after he came to a stop immediately after taking the chequered flag at the end of today’s sprint race.
“Having considered the matter extensively, the stewards determined that it was not possible to take a fuel sample of 0.8kg from car two after race two,” said the stewards in a statement. “The technical delegate’s report stated that sample extracted was 0.05kg. This is a breach of the technical regulation and car two is therefore disqualified.”
Ticktum had scored an emphatic victory in the race, taking the lead from pole winner Louis Deletraz at the start and leading Callum Ilott home by 4.6 seconds.
Ilott, who originally finished second, has therefore been declared the winner. Christian Lundgaard moves up to second place ahead of Mick Schumacher. Louis Deletraz, is promoted to fourth ahead of Robert Shwartzman, Jehan Daruvala and Jack Aitken, while Nikita Mazepin inherits the final point for eighth place.
In the revised championship standings Ilott has 149 points, Schumacher 143 and Shwartzman 140.
